Saffron is great demand for Italian saffron producers from both the Italian and foreign markets. Do you think that in all of Italy are produced from 450 to 600 kg. this depends on the climate of the year.

The Italian saffron producers call "red gold."

The Italian saffron producers throughout Italy are little more than 300. Iran is the world's largest producer of saffron. It was producing about 90% of world demand.

Other states that are good producers of saffron are Spain, Greece. The Italian saffron producers export about 550 million in annual saffron production could perhaps double up because of demand.

There are also Italian farms that after producing the saffron are dedicated to the preparation of products based on this red gold. Among these products we mention there honey with saffron, saffron liqueurs, pastries, jams and chocolate.

In this section we have also included the producers of saffron bulbs. They are farmers who grow the bulbs and sell the bulbs to be planted and then be able to give life to the saffron production.
